. >>> the "news nation" following developing news. under fire for the delayed budget, president obama within the last hour urged congress to pass a short-term budget to replace those $1 trillion in automatic spending cuts known as sequester, the remarks hours after speaker boehner called on the white house and senate democrats for a plan to avoid the deep across the board cuts. >> the house on two occasions has passed a plan to replace the sequester. it's time for the senate democrats to do their work. it's time for the president to offer his ideas about how to replace the sequester. >> there is no reason that the jobs of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energy not to mention the growth of the entire economy should be put in jeopardy just because folks in washington couldn't come together to eliminate a few special interest tax loopholes or government programs that we agree need some reform. >> our first read team notes that while republicans want to solely talk about the budget the white house does not want to be bogged down on one issue that in the
of expectations that we were going to get more transparency, particularly because president obama had just the night before said senators could -- senators from the intelligence committees could read the classified office memo, it did not lead to any greater sunlight about the program itself. first of all, that memo remains classified. the senators were allowed to go in, not their staffs, and by virtue of the fact that it remains classified, they couldn't even ask brennan any questions about what it is they read. and brennan himself was actually, in many respects, less forthcoming about the drone and targeted killing program than he has been in the past. he didn't even use the word drone, something that he had in a speech last year. so while he defended the program in general terms, said it was a last resort, said that we are actually trying to prevent, save lives, not punish people for past actions, revealed very little about the process by which people are selected for targeted killings, what the review process is, what the checks are, and those are are the questions at the core of this

"they just will not live in an evidence-based world, and that's regretle. it's regrettable for our political system and for the people who serve our government in very dangerous, difficult circumstances." amen to that. the president might not be able to call out republicans like this
to citizenship. president obama thinks that it should not be linked to stronger border security, but the republican plan, eric cantor, does want to see that linked to border security. so today president obama going to use his bully pulpit. he's going to meet with labor leaders and ceos and he's going to make the case to them that immigration reform is good for the economy. here's a look at who he's going to be meeting with in terms of the labor leaders. richard trumka of the afl-cio, eliseo medina, lloyd blankfein, and arnie sorenson, among others. so those are just a few of the folks with whom he will be meeting this afternoon. of course, time is of the essence, thomas. the president believes he has about a year, year and a half, to really make movements on some of these other policy issues, like gun control, like immigration reform. as you know, he was in minnesota yet, pressing for new gun safety measures. so i think this is a tactic you're going to see this white house continue with over the next several weeks. >> when you say time is of the essence, because of 2014, the mid

controversial drone program and the targeting of americans overseas. the obama administration now breaking years of secrecy and handing over a confidential 16-page memo that justifies the targeting killing of u.s. citizens abroad suspected of being terrorists. this decision to release the document came hours before brennan was to face a serious grilling by lawmakers outraged over the program. the biggest critic, democratic senator ron wyden who says the president has been stonewalling congress for years and suggested blocking brennan's nomination. president obama called wyden specifically last night. >> clearly, the president's call to senator wyden so unusual and trying to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. >> what standard will barack obama be held to after the pictures of the little children who were killed by his cone drone attacks are placed before the jury in the hague? >> i was encouraged last night when the president called and he said as part of this effort, he is going to try to drive a more extensive discussion about these issues. every american has the right to know w
saying that obama could be coming back because of the storm. the fact of the matter is that before hurricane sandy started, obama was trailing mitt romney. in gallop and rasmussen, virtually all of the major polling, because he had lost the first debate, not recovered in the second and gotten a little bit better in the third. and nobody could tell the impact of sandy. 15% of the voters made up their minds in the last 72 hours. and they cited sandy as number one. >> it wasn't just sandy. when the numbers finally came in for obama, he just cleaned romney's clock. i mean, he did. unfortunately for you guys, it was a really bad beating in the end. it wasn't really close, wasn't a nail biter, a surprise obama ran a much better campaign. you can't honestly blame a storm and say, that's what led to obama winning. >> no. >> obama was going to win -- >> i tend to believe that cnn's polling was accurate, wouldn't you? >> i think all the polls should be taken with a large pinch of salt. i really do, i think that nate silver was the guy -- >> he doesn't work for cnn. >> he doesn't. but we had

the administration justifies the targeted killing of american citizens. the white house says president obama has directed the department of justice to brief members of the intelligence committees. the move comes after a bipartisan group of 11 senators led by democratic senator ron wyden of oregon called for more insight into the government's legal rationale for drone strikes against americans abroad. senator wyden said on twitter, "every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them." this followed the leaked white house memo obtained by nbc news this week detailing criteria required for such a strike. this is all unfolding before today's senate confirmation hearing for john brennan, nominated to be the next head of the cia. and andrea mitchell, i wonder if this could, in any way, get in the way of brennan again. >> well, this is so much in a state of flux right now. clearly, i mean, the president's called to senator wyden last night, so unusual to try to reassure him and try to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. the fact is that brennan
